CFL Pick 'Em, Week Fourteen: Another week, another new name in first place. Is it you? It's definitely not Hamilton. Head north and make your picks inside.

Order is restored to the world as the Riders snap the Ti-Cats' two-game winning streak, although maybe not perfect order since the Argos upset Edmonton in a solid victory. Speaking of streaks, Calgary's keeps going in convincing fashion, while Ottawa gets back in the win column in a big way.

Into the final third of the season and nothing is decided. Well, Calgary is good. But apart from that, nothing.

WEEK 14

Ottawa @ Winnipeg (Friday, September 22)
Ottawa's put together a nice little run to regress more closely to their Pythagorean mean. But three of their four recent wins have come against the East, and their next four games are all Western opponents.

Hamilton @ B.C. (Friday, September 22)
B.C. is playing flip-flop with Saskatchewan for fourth place (and a likely crossover) in the division. With the Ti-Cats in town, the Lions will be out for blood.

Montreal @ Toronto (Saturday, September 23)
Honestly I don't even know with these two anymore.

Calgary @ Saskatchewan (Sunday, September 24)
Don't look now, but Saskatchewan's only four points out of a home playoff spot. Of course, they have to beat Calgary to stay there, which seems unlikely.

Good luck!

another new name in first place. Is it you?

It's me, it's me. Oh my goodness it really is me. How long can this euphoria last? Let me down easy, CFL.

The wild, wild west for the rougenoir. Will their late surge be enough to ground the Bombers? Ottawa by 11

Another scrap for litter box rights. Never bet against the larger cat. (I watch my 2 boy cats go at each other, and although they are of near equal size, the slightly larger one prevails about 3 out of 4 times.) BC by 26

Little birds against the mythical sailors. The only time a bird did anything bad to a sailor it was an albatross. Of course, the sailor had to do in the albatross first, so there is that. Toronto by 8

Roughriders against Stampeders. My spell checker doesn't like either one. Roughriders will have to hold their horses lest they get trampled. Calgary by 14

Dr J, I still think you have something wonky in the "Points" column; however, it looks like the "Total Points" column remains accurate. For instance, I got 5 points. The points column shows that I got 3, but my total score did, in fact, increase by 5. Whatevs.

This was a copy/paste error and will be corrected in next week's standings.

This is a bold move to catch up maximal ground on Howard_T.
